(Tea Party PAC) – On Friday, Nancy Pelosi reacted to reports that the Trump administration is considering a plan to release detained illegal aliens into sanctuary cities like her own.
While speaking at the closing press conference in Leesburg, VA, at the House Democratic Caucus Retreat, the House Speaker said, “I do not know anything about it, but again, it is another notion that is unworthy of the presidency of the United States and the disrespect for the challenges we face as a country and people to address who we are, a nation of immigrants.”
On Friday, the President floated the idea in a tweet.
“Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only,” he wrote.
This is honestly pretty brilliant.
The best option of course would be for Congress to change asylum laws to once and for all put an end to this madness.
The second best option would be for asylum seekers to remain in Mexico, a Trump administration policy that was recently struck down by a San Francisco 9th Circuit Judge, but then a three-judge panel also from the 9th Circuit issued a stay temporarily blocking the ruling.
